Birthday Wishes

This is my aunt. Isn't she beautiful? Today (well, the 7th) is her 70th birthday. Of her 3 sisters, she is the one my mom is the closest to, and like another mom to me. I know she loves me and my kids just as she does her own. She's been through some of the best life has to offer, and the very very very worst. This last year has been a tough one, among all her tough years. She's survived, but life has taken its toll. She's got a wicked sense of humor, as well as a kind and loyal heart, but don't get on her bad side. She's celebrating her birthday in Costa Rica, on vacation with two of her grandkids, along with my cousin and his son (from a different aunt). It tells you what kind of person she is that she's traveling internationally at 70 (stubborn, to say the least). And it tells you what kind of grandma she is that her teenage grandsons are with her, and probably having the time of their lives. Of course, they're probably frantically writing down all of their adventures with her for material for their next film project, but that will only make their grandma proud. Happy Birthday, and much love.

Sounds like you have a lot of the qualities of this aunt. You must have spent a lot of time with her to be so much like her. Go you.
